    I'm going away for 4 month backpacking and I'm not going to take the SG2 with me, so should I sell it or keep it until I come back?
    By the time I come back my contract would be almost over, so I can get a good deal on a phone if I resign my contract.
    Do you think in 4 month from now they'll be phones better than the SG2?
    I already have 3 buyers willing to buy it off me, but I'm reconsidering selling it because I love it.

    What would you do?

    Galaxy S3 is coming in 2012. Might have to wait a bit after you get back before it arrives. How much you get for your S2 will probably determine if it's worth selling.

    Android phones have a shockingly poor resale value when compared to the likes of Apple

    That's a good idea, maybe I'll just wait to renew my contract until the S3 comes out.
    if I sell it, I'll be selling it for $500 and I got it for 740 including tax.
    Do you think it's worth it?
    I'll be loosing $240

    Very true.

    Then again, there is a new kick ass android phone every few months.

    That's true and is down to the seriously powerful Apple brand and not necessarily the hardware it self....

    I personally would keep it. And look forward to the 'S3' next year.

    Why not unlock your phone and pick up cheap local sims wherever you're headed?

    I tried to sell my S2 shortly after getting it, It was practically new, just couldn't get on with it. 32GB SGS2 on eBay went for less than an old 16GB iPhone 4, I decided to just keep it, I was gonna be out to much.

    Apple is forever behind in terms of hardware. Software.. that's subjective :p

    Apple handsets to keep their value well.

    After I bought my SGS2 I decided to sell my iPhone 3 8GB and I got
